“DIY Danger"
Writer: Lew Stringer
Artist: Roberto Corona
Sonic has been invited to the unveiling of a new bridge at the Jade Hill Zone and ends up saving the life of the bridge’s designer Roger Bodge as his bridge falls apart. As a thank you Roger invites Sonic to his house to meet his wife and have a cup of tea. The problem is that Roger made the house entirely himself, and it’s of the same poor quality that the bridge was. He even tried to reprogram one of Robotnik’s Troopers into a robot butler. But when the Trooper sees Sonic his old programming kicks back in and he tries to destroy him. Their fight causes Roger’s entire house to fall to pieces, though it was on it’s way there without Sonic or the Trooper’s help in the first place. The hedgehog leaves hoping Roger has learned his lesson about dodgy DIY jobs.

Amy, Tekno and Johnny are scouring the ruins of Citadel Robotnik in hope of finding some equipment they can salvage when Tekno’s scanner picks up signs of life. They follow the signals underground where they find an organisation called D.R.A.T. (Doctor Robotnik’s Appreciation Tribe) is welcoming a new member. The new member uses an old weapon of Robotnik’s to try and stop the Freedom Fighters but since the weapon is flawed he defeats himself. This gave the other D.R.A.T. members enough time to escape from the Freedom Fighters though so they will return some day…

“Flip Side – Part One”
Writer: Lew Stringer
Artist: Carl Flint
Tails is starting to let the fact that everyone loves Sonic but barely anyone even recognise him get to him, so he goes to see Dr. Sorders for self-improvement lessons. The doctor hypnotises Tails to try and give him more confidence but an overdose makes him change his personality completely! He gets his wish of becoming more confident but now believes he’s too cool to help Sonic save citizens anymore. And without Tails’s flight Sonic can’t save passengers of a falling hot air balloon.
